Isaac Dyer Flag Transcript
Pensacola Nov. 11, 1862
Your letter of the 17th Ult. was received yesterday and the suggestions noticed. In reply I would say that I made the request sometime since and have been expecting the commissions &c.
Co. A. It would be desirable to have Lieut. Rich & Coates promoted and Sergeant Howe promoted to Lieutenant.
My impression is that Lieut. Morey had better resign and return to his former occupation. His habits are not what they should be for an officer.
In the event that Lieut. J.B. Nickels should be promoted I would recommend that Lieut. H.G. Prescott be promoted and that Sergeant Thomas H. Wentworth be appointed 2nd. Lieut. He is a very fine man and will make a superior officer.
I do not desire to have John C. Cobb promoted under any circumstances. I am informed that he is trying to obtain a Captain’s commission. If so, I desire that he may not succeed.
The flag sent us was presented to us by General Dyer accompanied by an appropriate speech. I think the Fifteenth Reg’t will redeem itself and take a respectable stand in the world.
I am Sir –
